T-28b In The Air

From one of our flyovers, the Palm Springs Air Museum T-28B Trojan in the air over the Coachella Valley. I was flying in the Air Museum C-47 “What’s Up Doc”.


Facing Off A Mustang

Today, yet again, I faced off a P-51 Mustang and forced it into submission. At the Palm Springs Air Museum.


Arrivals

Photographed some arrivals at the Palm Springs Airport this morning. This won’t happen on your iPhone.


The “Movie Memphis Belle”

Now at home at the Palm Springs Air Museum. It flew in about a month ago.The actual B-17 “Flying Fortress” from the 1990 motion picture “Memphis Belle”. Look for it flying in later 2022.


Fountain Of Life

The Fountain Of Life at the Civic Center in Cathedral City CA

Last night…. The Fountain at the Cathedral City Civic Center. Designed and built by two good friends of ours…
“The Fountain of Life was designed by artist Jennifer Johnson in coordination with architect Reuel Young, A.I.A. It was built by House of Stone and Fountains and Landscape Enhancements. Artisans whose families have sculpted stone for more than 600 years carved the fountain pieces out of adoquin stone from a quarry near Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. Once the individual pieces arrived in the desert, Johnson spent more than a year adorning the fountain with hand cut mosaic tiles and glass.”

And This Happened

And this happened… Getting ready to leave the Reno Air Races yesterday morning. Backseat of a P-51 Mustang.


Reno Air Races 2021

Saturday morning I fly up to the Reno Air Races. I am on the team for the Palm Springs Air Museum. We are racing three airplanes, two P-51 Mustangs and a P-63 Kingcobra. We are also flying up our T-6 and a C-47. An entire Air Force! I will be flying up in another P-51 Mustang but if one of these guys could take me with them that would be great. I am all about being time efficient. Less travel time is good. Thanks in advance Thunderbirds if you could stop by and pick me up. Photograph from the 2019 Reno Air Races.


My Best Side

Me doing more of what I do at the Palm Springs Air Museum. Photograph by my good Air Museum friend Rob.


National Aviation Day

It is National Aviation Day as well as being National Photography Day. Both work for me! In the Palm Springs Air Museum T-33.


National Photography Day

So today is National Photography Day. My friends are all posting photos of their first cameras. Mine actually was a Kodak Brownie. But my first serious camera was a Miranda Model F. This was around 1963. I primarily used it attached to my 8 inch reflector telescope for astronomy. As I best recall it cost me $35.00.


Diner Date

Don’t you just love it when your friend is already waiting at the restaurant for you.

Abs And More

Great photo shoot with fitness trainer Mark Rosenberg here in Palm Springs. I worked him pretty hard; a couple of hours trail running in the desert and then to the gym. Outstanding!


Photographing Fitness

A very fun photo shoot this past week. Running out in the desert and lifting in a gym with a trainer here in Palm Springs. He looked great and found out that in my photo shoots, you work hard. And yes you can shoot out here in the hot weather.


Sergi

A very memorable photo shoot with Sergi Constance. One of my all time favorite photographs I have taken.

Ski Inn II

Ski Inn II, an art installation at Bombay Beach on the Salton Sea. The real Ski Inn, bar and restaurant, in Bombay Beach is 223 feet below sea level making it the lowest bar in the western hemisphere. A real throwback to the 1950’s it has been featured by Anthony Bourdain and John Waters. Photographed at sunset.


Save Me Bombay Beach

A light display art installation at Bombay Beach at the Salton Sea.


Scenery Around The Salton Sea

The Salton Sea is 15 miles wide and 35 miles long. With so much shoreline and interesting places, there is always something wonderful to photograph. By example I happened to find this random model on a pole at an abandoned gas station and store.

Well maybe not so random. Nora from NYC came out and shot with me for the day all around the Salton Sea. Makeup and Hair Styling and Styling by the Estee Lauder featured artist Blanche LeBeau.

Photographed on a Hasselblad digital camera system.


George’s Drive-In

On Photo Excursions we always look for great places to eat that are not the usual we see in the year 2021 now. George’s Drive-In in Riverside on our Jurupa Valley Southern California excursion. A family roadside stop since 1974. Huge menu, food serving sizes off the scale and just great. If you are on some kind of diet, just forget it. You need the experience of eating this food!
